Only the Finest Quality Audio

We have four rather diverse albums for you this week.  I feel like we say that a lot, but just look at them! The styles are all over the place!  But that’s just how we like it, and hopefully you do too.  We also talk a little bit about getting Metal as HD audio.

Rain to the Sound of Panic

We don’t know what the weather has been like where you are, but where we are in NJ and MA (USA), we have had crazy heavy storms day after day.  They don’t last long, but they have been wreaking havoc in certain areas.  We mention THIS early on in the show, so see it for yourself.  Oh, and bonus kudos to anybody that gets the show title without googling it.

The One

Somehow Brian made it this far into the year without rating an album with a ‘1’.  If you’ve been listening, you know there have been plenty of albums he did not enjoy, but he found something redeeming enough to warrant a ‘2’.  Well – spoiler alert – that streak ends this week.  Which album gets the low score?  Listen and find out…

Ch-ch-ch-changes

We have talked about the evolution of a band’s sound or sudden shifts in style many times before on this here show.  Well guess what?  Those discussions happen again this week, based on varied examples.  You have been warned.

So Not Feeling It

Well, at least one of your hosts was not really into this week’s albums.  The other hosts’ opinions varied.  They did agree, though, they liked the First Impression and they love the Deftones live…but you knew the latter part from the few times they were reviewed before.
